I love cute things. I have a soft spot for anything that is adorable. I tell my kids all the time when they are fishing for ideas for a holiday or birthday present, just get me something cute. Cute things make my heart smile. For that reason I have several adorable toys and plush things around my home. Whenever I look at them, they make me smile.
I even have some children’s books that I’ve receive to review that I have kept (instead of donating) when I was done with my review, simply because they are adorable. Hopefully I can read them to my future grandchildren one day.
Not long ago I learned about a toy brand that comes from a part of world that my great-grandparents hail from. My great-grandparents come from Norway, which is one of the Scandinavian countries. Other Scandinavian countries include Sweden and Denmark. The brand is called Teddykompaniet.
For a quarter of a century this family-run Swedish business has been adored in Europe with the instantly recognizable characters guaranteed to bring a smile and an ahhh. Teddykompaniet toys are cherished for quality, safety and a high coziness factor.
Safety and sustainability are a big deal in Sweden. All Teddykompaniet products are manufactured according to Swedish and European safety standards, plus they are machine washable. Eyes, noses and other plastic parts are tested to withstand being pulled out. Seams are tested and drag-proof. All materials are fire- and flame-proof and non-toxic.
Now, thanks to the brand TriAction Toys, this popular European brand has been imported to American audiences with distribution specifically focused on independent toy stores and specialty retailers.
Retailers are currently stocking both the Pink Cat and Cow Blankets ($14.99 each), which are both super soft for babies. These precious blankies act as a comforter and the plush toy with sweet facial features of a cat or a cow.
Other sweet critters include a unicorn, lion, giraffe, bunny and an elephant.
TriAction Toys sent me the Large Elephant Blanket Set. This set comes with a large plush elephant, and a super, soft blanket. Both are great for snuggling and sleeping with.
The blanket can be used to keep the chill off a child as they sleep, or they can use it as a “lovey” (one of those blankets children like to carry around with them where ever they go).
I’m not exaggerating when I saw I wish the blanket came in adult sizes. I would sleep with that blanket all winter long. It’s SO soft and SO plush.
The elephant is sweet. He/She looks so happy.
I like how the blanket is rolled up and snuggly attached to the elephant, as if he’s holding it.
This would make a wonderful gift for a newborn, toddler, young child, or even a baby shower gift. Who wouldn’t love to receive one of these darling toys?
Infants and toddlers don’t need many toys during the holiday season. They honestly won’t remember too many of them. A toy from Teddykompaniet is something that will be cherished for many years to come. These are the types of toys that children hold on to (the ones that get so tattered and torn over the years, but children still love them).
